From playing with chiaroscuro to the illusion of stylised bokeh and more, colourful lighting photography has a whimsical and breathtaking allure. And it seems like our Clozetters know how to take command of these artistic compositions to create snaps that are truly mesmerising. Don't believe us?

It’s that time of year again where Kuala Lumpur — and the world — gear up to admire the latest pieces carefully curated and showcased by Malaysia's fashion powerhouses and up-and-coming stars. This year, expect to see over 80 designers showcasing their latest creations at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur’s Centre Court. Plus, some special collaborations. Here are just some of the few things to expect at the 2019 Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week.

KL fashion week celebrates its 7th year with designs to symbolise the number 7 in various languages

Fashion x Innovation 

Lexus partners with Alia Bastamam, one of Malaysia’s most loved designers to deliver a stunning show based on their brand philosophy “ Anticipate. Innovative. Captivate.” The theme coincides with Alia’s consistency and persistence throughout her journey as a designer.

Representatives of KLFW 2019 sponsors

Meanwhile, HP, the official notebook partner for 2019, has partnered with three designers to highlight their creative journeys with the HP Spectre x360, which offers superior design, leading security and enhanced performance, highlighting how magic is made when fashion meets technology.

Fashion x Beauty 

Look forward to not only fashion trends but beauty looks to cop because Shiseido will be a part of Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week for the first time as the official makeup sponsor, bringing with them a visionary range of cosmetics from their newly relaunched Shiseido makeup line.

Panasonic sets foot in the KL fashion scene for the first time, too, in their 101 years in the industry as the official hair and garment care sponsor, powering the hair and makeup stations backstage with their innovative products.

Fashion x Heritage 

The founder of KL Fashion Week, Andrew Tan, has been a guiding hand in bringing batik to the forefront of fashion, pushing it to be appreciated and celebrated hand-in-hand with upscale fashion through the Fashion Forward Batik initiative. Malaysia’s leading feminine care brand Kotex also plays a part in this movement by bringing to life the designs in their limited-edition Batik range that were created by marginalised female artisans on the runway.

One of this year’s focal points is sustainable fashion. Get excited for 13 young designers who are bringing a new perspective into the scene, aligning with the development goals of Airasia, Commonwealth Fashion Council of UK, and the United Nations. Indulge in an array of thoughtful pieces that place emphasis on ethical fashion and mindfulness.
